Committed to a collaborative relationship with my clients, I provide a warm, open, empathetic line of communication. My therapeutic approach is holistic and interactive, focusing on your unique strengths. Together, we can work to achieve a sense of peace and acceptance. 

I have post-masters training in a number of different modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and I approach each client as an individual.
